Trafficker Killer Arrested



NEW DELHI: A man was arrested on Tuesday for the murder of Shyamali Bhuiya, the 19-year-old woman from West Bengal who was missing since 2008. Yograj Singh is a resident of Bulandshahr in UP and the main accused in the case. Two of his accomplices were arrested last month. In a joint operation, cops from Delhi, West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh and members of NGO Shakti Vahini, arrested Yograj in Bulandshahr .

Shyamali was lured to Delhi by three persons: an agent named Dasrath, and two women named Tulsi and Kela, on the pretext of giving her a job. She was taken to Vrindavan in UP and sold off to Yograj for Rs 60,000. She was forced to marry Yograj, a man thrice her age. When her family received no information about her, they moved the Calcutta High Court. The court ordered the anti-human trafficking unit of West Bengal Police to find her and produce her in court. The cops sought Shakti Vahini’s help to probe the case in Delhi and UP.

Accordingly, on July 4 this year, a five-member arrived in Delhi and went to Bulandshahr from there. “Yograj’s house was raided . Further inquiry indicated that that she was killed and her remains disposed of. Locals told the team that a skeleton was found, but no case was registered. Cops suspected that at least five people, including Yograj, were directly involved in the case. Yograj’s elder brother, Maharaj, and one Uttam Singh, the brother of another suspect named Lakshman , were arrested,” said a cop.
